"You might want to try Marchese Racing. Paul Marchese makes those awesome speed skates that most of the Olympians wear. Last I talked with him, he had started making cycling shoes. The pair he showed me were unbelievable with carbon fiber custom molded platforms."

His delivery times are quite long. I was quoted 9 months. I had (and have) Rocket 7 make my shoes. Took about 3 weeks and was much cheaper (then $400, now $500). I cannot recommend custom made shoes highly enough. They've made a tremendous difference in my cycling comfort. I have very narrow feet and since Sidi widened their last nothing has fit me. The Rocket 7s fit. They aren't very classic looking but you can get them in all black, which helps.
